Science Friday on Forensics

Listen or read here as NPR’s Science Friday discusses the state of forensics.  Suzanne Bell, describes: that there is a “big disconnect that has led people to believe that forensic science is fine—it’s in good shape, it’s funded, it’s supported—when in fact it’s not,” “If we’re not going to cough it up for justice, what are we going to cough it up for?”  She added: “There are newer, better, and faster ways to do things, and it’s not that labs don’t want to do it. They just don’t have the time and they don’t have the money,” she said. “These folks are working just to clear backlogs every single day.”
